Listening to the news nowadays, we hear how the "Dark Web" is used to conduct illicit activities and how import it is to search for data that your organization or your customers deem important within those Dark Web resources. But in the very next sentence, many of these reports caution regular users to not visit Dark Web sites because of a fear that their computer applications and systems might be attacked and possibly compromised. So, how do we get at this valuable data on the Dark Webs without visiting the sites ourselves?

This live simulcast will showcase methods of retrieving, searching, and analyzing Dark Web data without visiting those, potentially malicious systems. Through customer examples, participants will leave the briefing with a good understanding of techniques and tools that can assist their organizations and clients with using Dark Web data.

  • Data collection
  • De-anonymization techniques
  • Data aggregation and normalization
  • Dark Web user activity analysis
  • Usage trends among and within Dark Webs
  • Dark Web analyst security/OPSEC
